Members of the public in Argyll are being asked about which council services they feel are priorities, as the authority tackles a £9.2 million funding gap for the next financial year.
Proposals to save money include transferring four council-run ferry services to Transport Scotland – a move which would release £1m a year.
Potential cuts on the table include proposals to slash 58.5 full time equivalent posts.
The removal of pupil support assistant hours in primary schools could see the loss of nearly 15 jobs.
Up to 25 public conveniences could close while burial charges could go up by as much as 20% and cremation fees 15%.
Seven school crossing patrollers jobs at 21 crossing points could be axed. There are also plans to reduce the education management team.
Council Leader Aileen Morton said: “Unfortunately, it has become the norm to speak every year about how much of a funding gap the council has.
“The importance of council services in everyone’s day-to-day lives, though, cannot be overestimated. We are all around, delivering hundreds of services from education to benefits advice, and from conducting weddings to recycling rubbish.
“Local people’s views have helped the council reach decisions in previous years and we would welcome them again.”
The consultation opened yesterday and runs until December. It is available on the council website. Printed copies are available in council service points or by contacting email@example.com or on 01546 604171.
